Langley Secondary School students Nathan Hillan and Kamil Golowko struck a wrestling pose in the foyer next to the school office. The words “Nihil Sine Opere” which, loosely translated from Latin, means “Nothing Without Effort.” Hillan and Golowko won gold in their divisions at the Western Canada age class tournament, held Jan. 16-17 at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
From a distance, it can be tough to tell Nathan Hillan and Kamil Golowko apart.
The Langley United Wrestling Club members and Langley Secondary School students are titans, especially considering their ages, and both sport near identical shortly cropped hairstyles.
Their features mirror their recent wrestling results.
Hillan, a Grade 10, won a gold medal at 94 kg in the Cadet Division (Grade 9-10) at the Western Canada Age Class Wrestling Championships, held Jan. 16-17 at the Richmond Olympic Oval.
A Grade 11, Golowko won gold at 115 kg in the Juvenile Division (Grade 11-12) at the meet.
“These boys have been battling hard and are the ones to watch in B.C. over the next couple of years,” LSS principal Dawne Tomlinson said.
